We believe everyone has the right to a home and churches have the power to meet the tragedy of homelessness in their community.
Starting 11 years ago we have grown into a mature organisation working with over 70 churches running 90 homes for over 250 tenants.
We have won numerous awards both secular and Christian including from the Guardian newspaper, Homeless link and Centre for social Justice.
We provide not just shelter and housing know-how, but also the friendship of a church, we are passionate about harnessing the social, financial and spiritual power of churches to enact real change both in them and our tenants.
Our first home had a real heart for men coming out of prison. Homes are now available for a wide range of people experiencing homelessness: people in recovery from addiction, people sleeping rough, women and children fleeing domestic violence, people coming out of rehab, former prostitutes, refugees, those suffering mental health issues and survivors of human trafficking.
Roughly 50% of our homes are in our ‘line-managed cities’ (Peterborough, Norwich, Nottingham, Cambridge.) The other 50% are found across a further 20+ towns. We franchise into those towns.
We encourage others to replicate our model through franchising. The tragedy of homelessness is in every community. Our vision is for every church to lovingly provide the homeless with a home.
